LOCAL UNIVERSITY HOST:
Now in its sixth year, Women in CyberSecurity (WiCyS) 2019 is the premier cybersecurity conference bringing together industry, students, educators, government and research.
The WiCyS Conference is co-hosted each year by an academic institution, and it has grown from 200 attendees in 2014 to more than a thousand today. Approximately half of the attendees are students who have been accepted on a scholarship. Scholarships are supported by the generous contributions of the WiCyS Sponsors, and the students receive two nights of lodging and their meals at the Conference at no charge. Sponsors have access to the posted resumes of students and other attendees in advance of the Conference, enabling them to recruit for open positions both before and during the Conference.
The array of both technical and diversity-focused programming, curated and presented by subject matter experts in cybersecurity, gives attendees an intensive learning experience, in addition to mentorship, networking and hiring benefits.
WiCyS is grateful to all the volunteers, committee members, sponsors and members who contribute their time and energy to making each Conference timely, relevant and rewarding for all who participate.
